Description

Malbec was born in France, but it is absolutely safe to say that it has become a star in the foothills of the Andes mountains of Mendoza. High elevation allows for ripe fruit flavors to develop in the heat of the sun, but chilly temperatures at night keep things in check. Malbec is now grown in a few places around Australia and a few producers are doing great work with it. The age of the vines and the harsh conditions in Mendoza produce wine that is difficult to recreate. Some of the best examples fetch prices similar to the best Barossa Shiraz, so we’ve made our introductions with the wine of the people. You won’t feel too bad when you inevitably finish the bottle to yourself.
